Some of the components used for the application development areas listed below

Drupal: A CMS platform renowned for a great web, social and mobile experience. Unsurprisingly it is taking the digital experience industry to another notch by connecting with users, customers and visitors at a personalized level. While the Drupal community is working on further innovations and ideas, quick adaptation to market needs helps them gain their slice of market share. This easy to learn, open-source content management platform is also a choice of millions of websites and applications powered by it. Drupal is an easy program even for beginners. Editing the web pages, saving pages in the draft format before publishing, quick access to the list of all pages created, are all quick and straightforward processes in Drupal. While it might take some time to get used to the interface, Drupal’s dynamic content and the ability to manipulate the content and makes it more than a regular CMS. Though it is very close to WordPress and a comparison is inevitable, Drupal wins its hands down in allowing the developer to control data input and output at a much better level.

PhpBB: Seen as an awesome open source forum making software, PhpBB is a flat-for umbulletin board software solution, used to connect with a group of people. The easily downloadable software is also free of cost and doesn’t even need credit card information to register. Thus a great tool for those developing forum-style discussion boards. The software allows things like assigning roles(moderators or admins), sending newsletters to your community, creating role-play lists, modifiable coding, enabling special permissions, and creating other customized theme-based content. Basic knowledge of HTML helps for creating things like custom widgets etc.

The software is customizable and has a plethora of additional options used in elevating the user experience.

For further security, PHPbb has a strong CAPTCHA and deals effectively with spams. It also has a built-in facility to warn, ban and even suspend un-complying members. PHPbb enables sending private messages, files, and view messages in auser-friendly conversational format.

eZ Publish: eZ Publish has been upgrading its platform into a better and stronger contender for producers and publishers of digital content. eZ Publish 4.7, or “Etna” - a complete customer experience management platform - is the transformed version of this web content management platform.

eZPublish is considered a classic "brochure ware" site. eZ Publisher is also developer-friendly. Developers with only a little PHP experience can get started. The ones with a higher experience can open the world of the development of custom modules. Also known as ez Platform, it features user-defined content and classes, workflow management and tasking, version control, document management with image conversion and scaling, templates, search engine support, regionalization, localization, and internationalization. It can be scaled up to support enterprise-level activities with support and maintenance provided by the vendor.

Hiring for technologies like these can be a task for the company. Especially if you have branches overseas. In such times it is always advisable to hire a company that can work as a local and is capable of hiring, onboarding, taking care of the payroll, taxation, compliances and other related operations. These companies act as your local HR and are well versed with the policies and laws of the land. Skuad is one such Employee on Record company working with companies that are globally distributed.
